Hi Tech and Bob

No device error in device manager and the xp and the Hd are the original from this computer. So yes, the computer is capable of running xp.

I've just been using the 98 Hd because I didn't think you guys have tested XP enough to get all the bugs out.   ::)

I'm sure I'll find it.

Hello oldman, so what does the BIOS say ? Check those temps and voltages ... This sounds to me like a PSU problem.

I think I may have it narrowed down. IE uses high 90% of cpu when on pogo. Updating the java to 1.5.14 at least stopped the reboot. It's sp1, so I get a warning if I try to update to 1.6.6.

Strange though both 98 and xp have IE sp1 and no problem with reboots on 98.

I wonder if a different browser would use less?

Are you installing Windows from Windows CD or from a Recovery Disk?
Isn't there any other OEM antivirus?
What the hell will avast providers be off? ???

Hi oldman,

What happens if you use The World browser from a USB stick: http://www.ioage.com/en/download.htm
Set it to close complete cache on closedown through options advanced.
Or try the minimalistic browzar shell: http://www.browzar.com/download/download_1.htm

Avast is the only thing that has changed on this HD, so I turned webshield, standard shield and script blocking off. It helped.  I not too concerned about getting infected.

Tech, there has never been anything on this HD except windows and a couple of programs.

You would thing if pogo was that intense on cpu usage it would effect win98 also.

I think I'll try a different browser or try to get this to boot from either HD. Win98 for pogo and xp for squashing bugs.

Hey pol, I'll check it out.

A good program that i use myself however this is for newer cpu's and it won't work for oldman i'm afraid. Read his signature ...

I think SpeedFan should work(not sure though) ...

Well I just ran it on pogo with my win98se for over an hour. System monitor said 100% cpu usage. No shut down.

So it has to be something in xp that doesn't like pogo.

It most likely has to do with your system. Since XP requires more system resources Ram etc than Win98,
it's probably not able to handle Pogo unless you upgrade your hardware.

Quiet possible, but I did use it about a year ago with no problems. Pogo however has changed to a more graphics. Now do you really need a butterfly flying by during a card game?  ???

Oh well not really the end of the world. It's would have been nice to have the xp for bug squashing. I'm getting tired of running xp in my head when helping folks.
